Gather Your Tools

Before we begin, make sure you have the following:

  • An Android device with the latest version of Zwift installed
  • A compatible TV with casting capabilities (such as a smart TV or a TV connected to a streaming device like Chromecast or Roku)
  • A stable Wi-Fi connection

Step 1: Connect Your Android Device and TV

First, ensure that both your Android device and TV are connected to the same Wi-Fi network. This is crucial for casting Zwift from your Android device to your TV.

Step 1.1: Set Up Casting on Your TV

If you have a smart TV with built-in casting capabilities, skip this step. Otherwise, follow these instructions:

  1. Connect a compatible streaming device (such as Chromecast or Roku) to an available HDMI port on your TV.
  2. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions provided with the streaming device to set it up and connect it to your Wi-Fi network.

Step 2: Open Zwift on Your Android Device

Launch the Zwift app on your Android device. Make sure you are logged in with your account credentials.

Step 2.1: Start a Session in Zwift

Choose a route or workout in Zwift to start your session. Ensure that everything looks good on your Android device before casting it to the TV.

Step 3: Initiate Casting

Now, let’s cast Zwift to your TV:

  1. Swipe down from the top of your Android device’s screen to open the notification panel.
  2. Look for the “Cast” or “Screen Mirroring” icon. It usually looks like a rectangle with a Wi-Fi signal in one corner.
  3. Tap on the “Cast” or “Screen Mirroring” icon to open the casting options.
  4. Select your TV from the list of available devices.

Step 4: Enjoy Zwift on Your TV

Congratulations! You have successfully cast Zwift to your TV from your Android device. Now, you can enjoy a more immersive workout or virtual cycling experience on the big screen.

Note: Some casting devices may have additional settings or options that you can explore for an optimized viewing experience. Refer to the manufacturer’s instructions for more details.

Troubleshooting Tips:

  • If you are unable to find the casting icon on your Android device, make sure that both your Android device and TV are connected to the same Wi-Fi network and that casting is enabled on your TV.
  • If you encounter any issues with lag or poor video quality, try reducing other network activities, such as streaming or downloading, while using Zwift.

That’s it! Now you can fully enjoy Zwift on a larger screen and take your indoor cycling experience to new heights. Happy Zwifting!
